RCD Schools typically see a significant improvement not only in behavior management, but also in school climate, student and teacher satisfaction and ultimately academic success.
It is a foundational tenet of Responsibility-Centered Discipline that in order for academic interventions to succeed, a system must be implemented to monitor and respond to student discipline issues and behaviors.
Programs like PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) and other Multi-Tiered Systems of Support have been implemented in schools across North America in order to increase student achievement. Not only do student discipline issues disrupt the learning environment, but time-based consequences have the unfortunate side effect of removing students who may need the most help from the classroom.
A key to success for PBIS, RTI and other MTSS programs is involving all students in the first level of intervention – and RCD is designed to provide consistent and effective disciplinary support at that level. RCD will also support the process as these programs move into more advanced tiers.
